Hi, I’m Alec and I’m 22. I had a stroke at the age of 4, which has left me with a left-sided hemiplegia and stutter.

Throughout this blog, I will share my life experiences in relation to coping with a disability. My primary target is to share my thoughts and emotions, in the hope that other’s with similar difficulties will feel that they are NOT alone.

In addition, I hope this blog will make people without a disability realise the consequences of how their hurtful comments, impatience and stares can have such a negative and significant impact on the morale of someone with a disability.
